New from AgJunction’s eDrive autosteer series are the high-performance eDriveXC with centimeter accuracy, and eDriveXD offering decimeter-level accuracy.

Building on the proven performance of the industry’s best-selling aftermarket steering systems, Outback Guidance is introducing three new precision auto steer systems at the 2014 Farm Progress Show. Two of these are next generation systems being unveiled from AgJunction’s highly successful eDrive autosteer series. This includes the new eDriveXD offering decimeter-level accuracy, and the new high-performance eDriveXC with centimeter accuracy. The eDriveX Series products are engineered for compatibility with a wide variety of brands of tractors, sprayers, spreaders and combines via hydraulic or electric steer interfaces. Both systems are designed to be fully compatible with the Outback MAX or Outback STX advanced GPS Guidance terminals.

Outback Guidance is also introducing a new electric steering interface system, eDriveESI, which puts accurate automated steering performance within reach of virtually any producer and any application.

eDriveESi can be coupled with the new eDriveXD or eDriveXC units to provide the desired level of decimeter or centimeter accuracy by simply replacing the existing steering wheel.  eDriveESi is fully compatible with both the Outback MAX and Outback STX, providing high quality, accurate and consistent steering performance with every pass.

Whether used with a hydraulic interface, eDriveESi electric system or pre-installed steer-ready system, Outback Guidance eDriveX systems take automated steering to the next level with eTurns, the industry’s only optional autoturn solution. Both products will be available Fall 2014 on OutbackGuidance.com.

“While eDriveXD offers ample accuracy for jobs like tillage, spraying, and harvesting, eDriveXC provides the repeatability, rapid line acquisition, and sub-inch accuracy needed for precision placement of nutrients, planting, and harvesting bedded or specialty crops,” said Outback Guidance Product Manager, Mike Bannister. “Of course, eDriveXC is equally adept at other applications that require a high degree of pass-to-pass accuracy or year-to-year repeatability.”

“In the meantime, eDriveESi offers fast, accurate steering response in addition to convenient, simple installation,” Bannister added. “In most cases, the electric steering wheel and model-specific instructions included with eDriveESi reduce installation time to about two hours. Plus, the system provides reverse operation and is easily transferable between machines to further reduce operating costs and driver fatigue.”

Used with a hydraulic interface or with the eDriveESi system, the eDrive Series systems provide straight, contour, and circle pivot modes for maximum versatility and are available in model-specific installation kits for quick installation on over 2600 makes and models of equipment.

“Best of all, all three of the new options provide a quick return on investment — often in a single season,” Bannister concluded. “Producers continually tell us how much they save on fuel, fertilizer, herbicides, and seed thanks to Outback Guidance. And that doesn’t count the reduced fatigue and ability to work longer hours and in conditions that often diminish visibility.”
